Blessed Are the Single-Hearted

“Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is” (Amy Carmichael).

Blessed are those who have learned to say no.

Blessed are those who have refused to engage in the rat race and do not believe in being busy for the sake of being busy.

Blessed are those who teach their children that life is more than the sum of their activities (and that sometimes it is good to be bored in order to foster creative thinking).

Blessed are those who know the meaning of contentment and no longer keep up with the proverbial Joneses.

Blessed are those who intentionally carve out margins in their schedules for quiet and stillness and to seek to hear the still small voice of God.

Blessed are those who understand that you will not have time for what’s important unless you make time.

Blessed are those who get that you will always find a way to make time for what and who really matters to you.

Blessed are those who are weary and burdened who hear Jesus saying that they can come to Him and find rest for their souls.
